    Well, this is the 84 K-5 I'm going to be getting. It's mostly stock. 350 GM Goodrich engine(50K miles on it, replaced a 305), 700R4 trans, auto hubs (which will go away when 3/4 ton), 10 bolts of doom front and rear. It's got that Zebart factory rustproof option. Silverado, has all power options. It got kinda sideswiped by a car at a bad intersection.. Paying a grand for it.. all the damage is cosmetic.. nothing with the structure is screwed up.

    OUCH! At least it will not be going to a boneyard. Nice color combination.

    Price is right... I guess... One thing is for sure... front end parts are real easy to come by at the local wrecking yards... any 81 thru 87 pickup parts will work... Enjoy... let us know of the progress...

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.rocko.coloradok5.com>http://www.rocko.coloradok5.com</A>

    I hope you enjoy body work! Looks good though! I would consider swaping out the rear for at least a 12 bolt.

  9. Frame is alright right? The good thing is, that when you are replacing the front clip, the engine will be very easy to get at, replace everything you can while the clip is off, hoses, fuel pump, fuel lines alternator, plugs wires etc... Also get that steering brace from ORD! The change in the ride is great.

    Chevy in my blood.
